By Telecom Lead Team: Aricent Group, a technology
services company, has completed an eight-week mediation and revenue
assurance implementation for MVNO Lebara Mobile.
Aricent implemented an integrated solution, combining its
frameworks with partner solutions to improve revenue management, streamline
rating and mediation to create a reliable, scalable BSS environment.
“Revenue assurance is a major challenge for MVNOs.
Estimates put revenue leakage between five and 15 percent of total revenue. As
many MVNOs operate on tight profit margins, the right revenue assurance and BSS
infrastructure can mean the difference between growth and stagnation,”
said Neeraj Vyas, vice president, Carrier Services & Solutions,
The newly modified environment centrally automates rating
of call data records (CDRs) per subscriber rate plans from across all seven
countries, while interfacing with network elements for CDR collection and the
business applications database.
With a multi-operator, multi-vendor environment across
seven countries, Lebara Mobile faced major challenges in accessing reliable,
actionable data for monitoring and charging of services.
The multi-country solution implementation ended revenue
leakage for Lebara Mobile and reduced operating expenditure through a more
agile and responsive IT infrastructure.
“Revenue leakage can happen for several reasons and
can touch many functions. With Aricent’s revenue assurance solution we can
trace every single call from origin to destination, giving us a clearer view of
our network and business than we have ever had,” said Shyam Mardikar,
chief technology officer at Lebara.
Recently, Aricent Group reached the landmark of 35 LTE engagements globally. The company said
that it has become the main supplier to some of the most prominent original
equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the marketplace, due to its internal R&D
investment in providing comprehensive software frameworks for LTE.
